  1. What if it just stays as ‘delivered’ and not opened? I sent a snap to someone who removed me from his friend list, but can accept snaps from everyone. Does this mean it’s in the great void, or did he get it and hasn’t opened it?

  2. If someone doesn’t have the app on their phone at the moment, but hasn’t deleted their account, will it still say “delivered” or will it only say “sent”?

  5. If it says delivered and not pending does that mean that the persons account is still active then!? He tells me he has deleted it but surely it wouldn’t deliver if this is true would it?

  7. I snapchatted someone and then I deleted it. I had to log out and log back in for a moment. It was for a minute literally. Once I clicked on his name to see if he viewed, it just said opened 5 hours ago when we previously talk. So did it send or not?

  9. If the snap says “opened” that implies that the person you sent a snap to opened it and didnt respond right? And if a snap says received that means the person I sent a snap to has recieved it but not viewed it? Also is “open” only for pictures or text also? And whats the difference between “opened” and “viewed”. I appreciate the help, thank you!!

    • Hello Jessica, Opened means when your text message have been read by your fried (text only). Viewed means your snap (picture or video) has been viewed by your friends.
